SLEs are ambitious, active individuals who are unparalleled in their ability to get what they want. Rapidly in tune with the lay of their surroundings, SLEs see the world around them as a battleground of wills, with each person competing for greater power and status. They are best at acting spontaneously and immediately to secure their goals in the present, getting an immediate sense of what is happening around them and what they need to do in order to stay ahead of competitors. In a state of emergency, they will be the first to respond, doing what is necessary to combat a particular threat, safeguarding their lives as well as those of others. Even in non-emergency situations, SLEs resolve to be the victor of skirmishes and are happy to pit themselves against others in order to win, utilising whatever resources are at their disposal to get an advantage. To SLEs, an obstacle is a challenge to be overcome, and they readily push against an issue with sheer determination until it folds under their will. Although not necessarily strong or able-bodied, SLEs have a natural physical presence and indefatigable determination that commands attention of others and allows them to dominate their surroundings, taking charge as a matter of course and forcing others to submit to their authority. SLEs enjoy the thrill of competition and tend to respect those who challenge or resist them, while looking upon those too lazy or weak-minded to stand up for themselves with disdain. Such an approach is not out of malice or destructive desires, but rather comes from a world-view where the greatest expression of life is competition between opposing forces and those most deserving of happiness in life are those willing to fight for it.

SLEs prefer direct, tangible ways of interacting with their surroundings, seeing a problem or obstacle and prevailing against it. Nevertheless, they are aware of the need to be able to consider alternative plans of action and to be able to switch to a second option should their first prove unachievable due to unexpected circumstances. For this reason, SLEs are able to consider a multitude of possible options when necessary and can, when needed, flexibly adapt to changing circumstances. They may be open to new propositions and solutions when the most immediate and impacting approaches have been exhausted and thinking outside the box is required. SLEs are usually tolerant of otherwise confusing or unlikely scenarios, usually relying on their quick thinking and strong awareness of their immediate surroundings in order to improvise and pull through. However, the continued need to account for multiple eventualities can be a bother for SLEs, who would rather just tackle a particular issue and move on to the next. Instead, they favour the efforts of others to envision a long-term plan, which selects the likeliest probability to work towards and cutting out all the superfluous paths to success.
SLEs best function spontaneously, seizing an advantage in the present based on their desires or ambitions at that moment. As such, they are far less accustomed to considering the longer-term outcomes of their actions, where winning a battle may inadvertently lead to losing the war. SLEs may enjoy intense, vigorous action in the day to day and working to establish dominance of their surroundings, but can find that excessive action without due consideration of the higher purpose of why they are doing something can lead to a superficial existence of empty conflicts. However, while SLEs are frequently certain as to what they need to do in the here and now to get what they want, they are more unsure in terms of what these short-term decisions may lead to in the long run. SLEs need to feel that their actions are contributing to some kind of big picture, so that their struggles mean something important, rather than being petty squabbles. For this reason, SLEs greatly desire a cause to believe in and work towards or a destiny to play a part in. They tend to be very responsive to those who can visualise such a cause and, if accepting of a particular path, will endeavour to align their actions with it. This provides a much needed sense of fulfilment to SLEs and uplifts their actions into something more profound and meaningful. Furthermore, the lack of attention to long-term consequences can result in SLEs being reckless, where by placing too much confidence in their ability to handle situations in the moment, they might rush into things too soon when the situation requires adequate preparation and planning.
|Agrippina the Younger|
Although aware of the sensory needs and limits of their body, SLEs prefer to lead a strenuous life, pushing their body to its limits and overcoming physical challenges. SLEs have a varying approach to materialism, usually preferring to live a tough, Spartan life with few luxuries, so that they do not get weakened by softness. Instead, they may frequently exercise or seek to build up their bodies to be ready for any challenge that faces them. They may even try to push those who they see as overly restful, disturbing the tranquility and forcing them to react on instinct. However, SLE appreciate luxury in the form of the status symbols and concrete displays of their power, so may indulge for this reason. Should they enjoy rest and leisure, it is because it is a sign of their ownership of leisure, and they may be very generous in inviting others to share in the enjoyable lifestyle they alone are able to provide. However, most apparent is their willingness to tolerate a great deal of physical pain in order to win the challenges they set for themselves. The willpower of SLEs is necessarily connected to the ignoring of inconveniences and even flesh wounds to secure their goals, with them knowing that suffering no pain often results in no gain. Furthermore, SLEs tend to have a good sense of aesthetic when cultivating an appearance. However, such an approach is rarely peaceful or harmonious with the environment, instead, trying to push out against it for maximum impact. As such, SLEs may choose to dress sharply or provocatively to maximise their effect on the environment.
